This is the sequel to “Old Man’s War”, which I wrote about a couple of weeks ago.
Again, I listened to this as an audiobook, sometime in December. What I remember most was the wonderful voice of the narrator – deep, mellow, and so relaxing. His voices for all the characters were both varied and convincing, even his rather strange-sounding females. Sadly, I don’t know who this voice actor is, but I’ll definitely try and find some more of his work. It really did add to the book.
The book itself – well, you’d have had to have first read the first book to fully appreciate “The Ghost Brigades”. It’s not a like-for-like comparison – each books focuses on totally different people – however I think that this book might just have the edge. They’re both good, and you should read them. Do it.
